Patrick Pascal, the team coordinator for the national team of Nigeria, Super Eagles, stated that only three players, William Troost-Ekong, Semi Ajayi and Isaac Success have arrived at the team’s camp in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
The Super Eagles of Nigeria, will play Libya on Saturday in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
He, however, stated that some of the players have arrived in the country but could not travel by air to Uyo because of the various primaries that took place in Abuja and most especially Port Harcourt, Rivers State, which is the same route with Akwa Ibom, the venue of the teams camp.
The Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, is reported to be expecting a complete team when the first full training session takes place on Tuesday evening at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium.
Rohr’s men will travel to Tunisia for the return leg slated for Tuesday, October 16, 2018.
“We have here with us right now in camp only three players and they are Troost Ekong, Isaac Success and Semi Ajayi.
“They were the first arrival in camp. Many of them are already in Nigeria but they couldn’t get flights to Uyo because of the elections’ primaries that took place at the weekend.
“But the boss (Gernot Rohr) expects a full house for the evening training tomorrow (Tuesday),” Pascal told SportingLife on Monday night.
